simply called...


the main building.

This massive and imposing structure has the rugged look acquired through time since it’s construction in 1927. Most people mistook the main building as the university’s church but the cross atop the tower only signifies the catholic mission of the university.

This building hold many stories within its walls, turned into a concentration camp by the Japanese Imperial Forces in World War II. Here 10,000 Americans, British and other nationals were interned from January 1942 to February 1945. Here they were starved, dehumanized, left to die.

Some kind of history for this imposing building.

Despite its sad past, architecture is fine and not "too heavy"

This is one of the icons of our rich Philippine history. :)
